Head to a circus show in Boston
From 10 October 2012 To 14 October 2012Address
TD Garden, 100 Legends Way, Boston, MA 02114, United States
There is so much to do in a city like Boston that it can be difficult for visitors to pin their itinerary down to a manageable number of events.
However, as well as checking out all the local restaurants, another good way to get a flavour of the local culture could be to head out to a circus.
Between October 10th and 14th, the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be taking up residence at the TD Garden in Boston.
The group was formed in 1919 after the merger of James Anthony Bailey and PT Barnum's Barnum & Baily Circus with the Ringling Brothers Circus.
However, it can trace its roots back to 1875, when Dan Castello and William Cameron Coup persuaded Barnum to lend his name and financial backing to a circus they had already created in Wisconsin.
The Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston is just a short, ten-minute walk away from the venue - so it could be the perfect place for tourists to stay.
An exhibition at a museum in Boston will show how the poses of people in Renaissance paintings are significant.
